evening. john -- san francisco. something you might want to think about. i call it the fanaticism of the one only truth. eventually would become so passionate about the cause we no longer can think straight. it becomes our identity. we cannot afford to lose it. we do not have any other. of course one person's opinion might be another's wrong. we believe ours is the only one. and all the others are a threat and must be eliminated at all costs. there is more than one truth; each can stand on its own, does not need to be a threat to one another depending on the degree of perspective. for the universe to work that must be compromise. you have no legitimate right to have it all your own way. we call that fanaticism, that can lead to violence. thank you for listening. >> next speaker. >> i am a resident of the north market neighborhood, around city hall here. i want to welcome our two newest supervisors. and one whose district borders in my neighborhood. i hope you do well with it. the previous resident was supervisor avalos. i do represent -- i try to work with the voters of that n

admiral john banoff in 89 after the earthquake. he was still with the navy. helped us tremendously with a aircraft carrier and the work in recovery, and in 1992 mayor jordan sought to seek his leadership and have him head up what is today our dem but at that time it was the office of emergency services so for five years i got to work with admiral bit off and lead the effort at oes but at the time that we really required some strong leadership because it was shortly after the 101 california shootings that we realized very clearly different agencies within the city had to speak more deliberately with each other, had to have systems and communications and culture built around much more collaboration, particularly with communication. well, that spawned this particular building, and its housing of not only the emergency management, but its physical location of our 911 emergency dispatch system which is right upstairs, and that was started on and under the leadership of admiral bit dlf off. it was concluded very well. he then went on to what i say was parallel to me because i thought

, joe butler and i represent the friends of first st. john's united methodist church. as an architect in the city, we are pleased that the city has won its case in state court, and we would ask that the city continue defending the decisions of this panel in the federal court lawsuit as well. we think that the case that's before the city is important to other historic resources, including the one which is at question here. and we would hope that the city would continue in its efforts to secure, as it were, the ability of this planning commission to make decisions on replacement buildings without, which, as you know, no demolition permit can be issued. thank you very much@%(hk. commissioners. my name is rowena jen, adjacent neighbor to the east at 1600 larkin street, have been there since 1972. i was not very prepared for this meeting today because i heard from judge beerl that there would be no action until march. so i had to cancel an appointment to get here, but that's fine. but since the last hearingynno@n december 13, 2012, after repeat requests by this commission, including commi
?lfjçlñpizgç >> good afternoon. i had a card filled o owd out. should i be here now? i john sham bray. i own a property at 75 pierce street and have been there 28 years. i've come to just about all the hearings and have been in opposition to it since it came to my attention in early 2011. only because i feel that thek3j. historic designation of our neighborhood should have been something that the neighbors, who purchased and maintained these homes, should ask for, not something that the city should be imposing on us. beginning, what does this do for the homeowners, other than add additional loopholes, additional fees, additional approvals, over and above the already inconsistent application of the existing law. it seems unfair to me because they offered nothing. the mills act was redone to make it easier for property owners to that's great. doesn't help me a bit. i've been there 27 years. it's not going to help me at all. they said at one time it would help us increase the values of our property. i think the city has backed off on that since our property values are already a little bit over the top. wh

have asked our deputy director for architectural access, john paul scott to give us a briefing on some of the big projects that he submitted for our capital planning budget. now i wanted to tell you about a couple special probings that our office worked on recently. we just finish a project to develop accessibility guidelines for park lifts. -- parklet. if you haven't seen a parklet, you should walk or drive down valencia street or hayes valley, because those are the biggest concentrations that we find parklets. parklets are built out into the street. they are an expansion of usable public space next to the sidewalk and they are a good place to sit and talk and maybe have a cup of coffee. by developing accessibility guidelines, we're ensuring that these spaces are also going to be accessible to people with disabilities. that there will be turning circle radius. that there will be accessible counters and seating built into the design and also that they provide the right kind of warnings for those who are blind or low-vision to make sure they don't actually step off a parklet and into

. >> good evening commissioners john kwong from the department of public works. there appears to be a continual different interpretations from the various parties related to the department's process. let's first go to the notification. the notification as stated by the various partis is correct about what is a truck. it's located -- the notification is to be 300' radius from the mid-point of the block or the length of block, whichever is greater. that is how the legislation is written up. when it's a food cart as such at a specific property address it's 300' from that throt.lot. it's relates to the evaluation of like foods, the department tries its best to make sure it's been 300'. we make that determination as it relates to like foods. now to suggest that we use a 300' radius, it would be as the bird flies, which would not be appropriate. previously under the previous legislation that has been since suspended which came from the san francisco police department, the police department requires 600' distance, which the police department actually uses a measuring wheel to wheel

to come down with something. >> sorry. >> good evening commissioners, john kwong from the department of public works. in the rebuttal, when i was listening to rebuttal, it strikes me as interesting of the argument again of the 300' radius, the block face, and all the associated really detailed related to both the ordinance and how we process permits it's relates to mobile foods. the statement on one hand stated that when we evaluate for like foods we should use the 300' radius as established per the notification. however, in the same vain vein, it doesn't make sense to the department how it should be interpreted. we had always interpreted it assessor's block. you are seeing the notifications for the food trucks that happened, adjacent to, i believe it was on speer street which was one appeal. all of these were defined by the mid-block of that block defined by the two major streets. that is how we always interpreted it. i will go back and revere if i with the city attorney's office additional clarification, if that is the will of the board, but our practice has always been to treat i
